Daryl Hannah and Neil Young appear to have won first prize in two wedding ceremonies – the first on his Washington State yacht, the second-to-last calendar week in California
Ron Fugere, a local boat captain on the San Juan Islands People, on July 27, they had a "small, intimate gathering" on Young's 1913 vintage boat, WN Ragland.
"I saw a boat at the end of the dock that I did not know I thought I would go down and see what boat it was," says Fugere. He serves as captain of NorthWest Sailing Adventures.
Fugere, who was with a friend, spotted Young in the 1
A few days later, Fugere noticed people aboard Youngs yacht. "[I] thought, 'God, this looks like a wedding!' We took out the binoculars and looked and it looked like a wedding."
"All we really saw was the officer and the couple because we were some distance away", says Fugere. "They threw some petals and wrapped them."
"Shortly after sunset, of course, the blood moon rose," he says – fitting for the "Harvest Moon" singer. "It's an exciting time."
Page Six reports that Young and Hannah had a larger ceremony for 100 guests, including Joni Mitchell and Stephen Stills, near San Luis Obispo, California on August 24th.
